Hi guys, In my 20s at the moment and currently working in finance. I have received all my offers to do PGCE maths this September and have been awarded the scholarship. I have been really looking forward to it as I have worked in a school before for 6 months and really enjoyed most aspects. And I've had to prepare loads for these interviews and booked time out of my annual leave for them. My work don't know about my plans, and I had a meeting last week and they said they expect me to be promoted again within a year and soon I will be on 60k a year plus benefits plus progression further beyond that salary as the company is very much growing. I've already made a few sacrifices, I've sold my Porsche which I've had a for a few years because I can't afford to run it whilst being a PGCE student. On top the salary is 24k starting for a maths teacher which means I will be taking a massive pay cut, I mean we're not talking a few grand here. 24k means the places I go out to eat, holidays, car and general lifestyle will be vastly different. My plan was to make my money and then at 40 go into teaching, but I feel I can make a greater impact whilst I'm still somewhat fresh minded, and I have received wonderful feedback from students and schools I've interacted with in the past. The world of finance in cruel, I have to be ruthless (which is unlike me) to stay ahead - it's not a place for morals and i will say no more. What do you guys think? Would you consider teaching in my situation or would you stay? My friends are largely telling me to stay in finance and cash out whilst I can. Cheers guys.
